Cydia is like the app store but it's opensource! 

• Now you are almost done! 

• Once your jailbreak is complete 
you will notice a new app; either 
Blackraln, Cydia, or Loader. If it is 
Cydia, then skip the next section of 
this step. 

• If you have Blackrain or Loader, 
open it and click the download link 
for Cydia and it will install and 
might reboot your device. 

• Now that you have Cydia you can 
open it and select the latest 
download that will pop up. 

• Now you can download tweaks and 
open-source apps that can change 
your device or add themes! 

• Remember that downloading apps 
such as installers or apps that 
illegally pirate other applications 
are illegal although jailbreaking 
itself isn't. 

• Be safe and have fun with this cool 
new hack!
